How can I and what program to use?


Hello to All,
I'm tring to set up a home network server.
I have one vista ultimate 64 bit machine and 5 winXP machines in which 4 of those are wireless to my router.
What i'd like to do is be able to print from the server, load game onto server, and access the server from all computers to play games.
Also I would like to save my pics & files from the other machines and have one location to retrieve music, pics and video files.
Can you help this newbie in the right direction?

Samba is the standard package for this. See www.samba.org
